As an adult I seem to enjoy the same sorts of events and activities that I liked as a kid. It’s not really surprising that my husband and my son like similar fun, too. So, this fall we are heavily into soccer practice and games, and attending college football weekends or other sporting events. We like all aspects of this busy fall life.
Soccer is becoming a bigger commitment each year as my son grows older. The practice time has increased and so has his enthusiasm for learning and playing. Late afternoons and evenings are a race at our house. Hurry home for a huge snack, dress for practice, carpool there, carpool home. Fit homework in sometime! Eat dinner—you know the routine!
I especially love being part of a team, and my son does too. To some extent the physical skills for a game are individual, but yet the efforts to win are intertwined. Being part of a group makes practicing, playing and winning so much more. We develop friendships, laugh and learn to work together.
This fall, Lucy’s is stepping up to support youth sports teams across the U.S. It takes a lot to make a team work: Players, coaches, parents, boosters, equipment, etc. We want to support the great stuff that happens when teams get together.
During our Youth Sports Giveaway, winning teams will receive a $250 gift card for Dick’s Sporting Goods merchandise and Lucy’s Snack n’ Go cookie packs. We know kids need equipment and energy to play and have fun!
We hope you will sign up to win for your team. Enter Lucy’s Youth Sports Giveaway by clicking here. And, you can improve your team’s chances of winning by sharing this contest information with other parents and coaches.
We’ll select a winner each week for three weeks, starting October 4, 2013. When a winner is chosen, we will require a letter from their league verifying participation within the team and sport organization.
Good luck and have fun, no matter what!
